Service-obligated scholarships for full-time students of allopathic (M.D.) and osteopathic (D.O.) medicine, dentistry, family nurse practitioner, nurse midwifery, and primary care physician assistants. Other health disciplines may be included if needed by National Health Service Corps. Scholarship pays tuition and required fees for the year to the school, pays a monthly stipend to student ($1,128 for 12 months of the 2004-2005 school year) and a single annual payment to the student to cover the cost of all other reasonable educational expenses (books, supplies, equipment, uniforms, clinical travel, etc.) based on costs by school and class year. Awards are limited to U.S. citizens due to potential for Federal employment during service. Applicant must be enrolled in a U.S. accredited school. Each year of support incurs 1 year of service. A 2-year minimum service commitment is required. A maximum of 4 years of support may be awarded. Service is primarily a nonfederal salaried or contracted employee of a public or private non-profit entity, providing full-time primary health services. Services may also be in a fee for service private practice setting, or a Federal employee in Federal health systems such as the Indian Health Service, Immigration Health Service or Bureau of Prisons. Service sites are selected by the scholarship recipient from the list of high priority sites in HPSAs identified by the National Health Service Corps. Physicians receive their site list at the beginning of their last year of residency training; nurse practitioners, nurse midwives, and physicians assistants receive their site list within 6 months of their graduation. Service sites are limited to the United States, territories, and successor States to the Trust Territories, the Republic of Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of Palau. Deferments of service are granted physicians to complete residencies in family practice, internal medicine, pediatrics, psychiatry, and OB/GYN.
